Integrating measurement into the investment process
By Jana Svedova

Impact measurement goes hand in hand with impact investing. It is one of the four core defining characteristics of this investment approach as defined by the Global Impact Investing Network and has been one of the main themes in the sector’s development. Although measurement is one of the last steps in integrating impact into the investment process, it must also be considered throughout the full investment process, from due diligence, to deal making, to post investment management.

It's that time of year: Propel 2017 registration is open! 

On May 24, during Social Enterprise Month, we invite you to join us at Propel 2017. The theme this year is: Reimagine Value. Join entrepreneurs and professionals pushing the boundaries of traditional mindsets and reimagining value out of broken systems. 

We will kick off the evening with a panel of founders from three global purpose-driven companies: Patrice Mousseau (founder, Satya Organics), Sam Goldman (co-founder, d.light), and Natalie Voland (President, Gestion Immobiliere Quo Vadis). Six up-and-coming impact entrepreneurs of the 2017 CCS iHub cohort will also share how they reimagine value and build global businesses for good.

Get your tickets now and join us at UBC Robson on May 24 for an evening of actionable inspiration! More information can be found on our event page.
